HIV has come knocking on the front doors of homes in Tamil Nadu.
The virus disease is now spreading to housewives and professional women more than ever before.
Research by National AIDS Control Organisation shows that intervention has succeeded in lowering the incidence of HIV infection among commercial sex workers from 10.3 per cent to 4.9 per cent from 2003 to 2008, but the ratio of all men and women infected with the virus has remained almost constant at 60:40.
Doctors have concluded that the new wave of infections has afflicted mostly women who are not commercial sex workers.
Another study by YRG CARE involving subjects from Chennai shows that over 22 per cent of the identified HIV+ cases in the city are housewives. Even though the YRG study did not include commercial sex workers, doctors say the statistics are a cause for concern.
